Messy World

Christmas can be the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be kind of messy. That’s because some of us have messy families. Some have messy lives. Sometimes we are faced with messy choices because we live in a messy world. Fortunately God loves us enough that He was willing to enter our mess in order to bring hope and healing to our chaos. This series will help us see how Christ is the answer to our…

Awakening to Life

Like the prodigal son in the Bible, we spend our life on a journey toward God that oftentimes, due to our deeply felt longings, ends up leading us away from our Creator, rather than toward Him and the person he intended us to be. In this series, we will learn about the 5 Awakenings – Awakening to Longing: There’s Got to be More, Awakening to Regret: I Wish I Could Start Over, Awakening to Help: I Can’t Do This On…

Live Differently

It’s obvious in today’s culture that there’s friction between the values and viewpoints of those who follow Christ and those who don’t. The recent Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage has brought this friction to the forefront which is why, if there was ever a time for Christians to understand and communicate God’s truth about controversial and polarizing issues, it’s now. Believers must develop convictions based on biblical truth rather than popular opinion. In this series we will discover that…

Giving – Where Life is Launched

Our perspective on money and possessions – and how we handle them – lies at the heart of the Christian life. The Bible clearly reveals that our view of money and possessions is extremely important. What we do with them will influence eternity. That’s because God, who is infinitely rich and owns all things, has assigned to human beings management responsibilities over His assets. In this series we will explore what it means to be a good steward of God’s…

Grand Slam!

Welcome to the ball park! The baseball diamond is in front of us and moms are the right field line. Dads are the left field line. Moms and dads take responsibility for what happens on this field between these lines. They coach the players, instruct each batter as they approach the plate, tell the runners when it is time to advance and inform them when to pause at the bag for a better opportunity. Coaching… guidance… direction… leadership… shepherding… these…

The Source of Words

Words are powerful things. They give us the power to heal and the power to hurt. The power to give hope and the power to discourage. The power to build up and the power to tear down. There is no marriage, family, friendship, or relationship that isn’t either made stronger or made weaker by how you choose and use your words. Yet controlling what we say from moment to moment is perhaps one of the most daunting challenges for a…
